I hope you are enjoying these final weeks of summer. As a Planning Intern with the City of Oshkosh, Planning Services Division, I will be spending my remaining weeks knocking on doors with a brief survey of residents' knowledge regarding neighborhood identity. Please consider forwarding the facebook or weblink for the survey to your networks in Oshkosh so we can work together to strengthen neighborhoods. The announcement below can be cut and pasted directly from this page. This is an exciting project that people are talking about on facebook and twitter. Enjoy your summer!
The City of Oshkosh Planning Services Division invites the public to share their knowledge of neighborhood identity through a brief online survey. The survey is open to City of Oshkosh and area residents who would like to share their local knowledge about the identity, location and character of Oshkosh Neighborhoods. Residents may choose to provide their contact information, but are not required to.
The survey will be open from August 11th through August 20th with results shared in September. Individual responses will be kept confidential but the overall results will be publicized. Respondents can plan on the survey taking approximately 5 minutes to complete.
The City of Oshkosh Planning Services Division seeks to provide a Neighborhood Resource Toolkit to existing or new neighborhood groups as a portal to local resources. This will enable engaged citizens to find out how and where to get information relevant to establish neighborhood identity, organize, and share best practices for community-building.
To take the survey, please link to: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/
To circulate and share the survey, a special link has been created for Facebook: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/
